Jarrad Waite has quit Carlton after 13 years at Princes Park.
Carlton forward Jarrad Waite has informed the club of his intention to leave the club during the AFL’s free agency period.
The 31-year-old was selected at pick 46 in the 2001 national draft, however injury has restricted him to just 184 games for the club.
Blues football operations manager Andrew McKay said it was sad to see Waite leave, but thanked the player for his 13-year contribution to the club.
“We had always been hopeful that Jarrad would stay at Carlton, particularly given his strong family connection to the club,” McKay said.
“However free agency does give players the chance to explore their options, and while we believe we put a very good deal in front of Jarrad and his management, the offer has been declined.
“I would like to thank Jarrad for his service to Carlton over 13 years. He made a valued contribution to the Carlton football club.”
